Testimonial for Jolene Knutzen

I honestly didn't know what or how to write my experience with Jolene until this evening.First, my prenatal experience was so beyond informative. I am a first time mother and just expected birth to be birth. She  explained so many things and possibilities. I really needed the education aspect. Second, The 24/7 24hr support she maintained was second to none. I truly appreciate every text and call she responded too. Third, my birth. Wow. She came to my home and just set the most stress and anxiety free environment. She had me rest and gosh I'm glad she suggested rest. When I woke up she had me eat and drink a small snack and made extra for later. She explained everything as we went. A few hours later she suggested we gather our things and head to the hospital. The rest is kind of a blur, but we got checked in and "settled" and I was at 8cm!  Jolene talked me into a positive state of mind, played meditation music and had me relax. My water broke and she got a nurse who said the ob is on the way. The nurses kept telling me to focus on keeping baby in. Well I couldn't. My body experienced what Jolene explained later as FER. I caught my own baby. Wow were the staff mad. Jolene however, expressed how proud she was that I listened to my body. My ob got there 30 min later. She positively got me through so much. I will forever be grateful for everything she did. Postpartum shift, she came over and we chatted about the highs and lows of the hospital experience. Since so much was a blur she explained what happened,  why, and really put my mind at ease. She did light house  cleaning and meal prepped meals for my little family. Took my little lady and gave me some healing bath soak and ensured baby would be ok while I soaked. Before she left I cried. I never wanted her to leave. I will for sure be hiring her if we have more kids. I have a forever empowering person in my ballpark and a forever advocate. Thank you.
